Certified Pollinator Advocate Program | All About Bees

April 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Cost Varies

Course Details:
Hundreds of bee species are native to our Western North Carolina mountains. Pollen is their only source of protein, that’s why they actively–not accidentally–collect it. No wonder bees are considered the best pollinators in the temperate world! This class explores their life cycles, nesting habits and floral preferences.

Additional Info:
“All About Bees” on April 8 is part of the Certified Pollinator Advocate Program launched in January 2024 by the Botanical Gardens of Asheville and Bee City USA Asheville. The BGA and BCU-AVL will jointly offer this series of 12 monthly classes covering pollination ecology topics and leading to certification as a Pollinator Advocate.

All 12 classes will be offered in 2024, and repeated in 2025 so individuals may complete the certification and become a pollinator advocate over 2 years. To become a “C.P.A.” individuals will complete 12 classes, plus complete 2 volunteer opportunities with Bee City USA-Asheville.
